Curious Theatre Company presents Jordan Harrison’s Maple and Vine, directed by Chip Walton. The production runs January 12 – February 23, 2013 at 1080 Acoma Street, Denver. The opening night is January 12, 2013, at 8 p.m.
Katha and Ryu, a modern-day couple stuck in a modern-day rut, discover a way out of the troubles they’ve been having—moving to a planned community perpetually located in 1955. Will going back to this not-so-simpler time be the answer to all their problems? Harrison’s audacious premise takes the audience into a parallel universe that is hilarious in its attention to detail, and surprisingly seductive in its artifice. Have we made progress as a society? Is it possible to forego the values of the present for the mores of the past? Would we even want to? Garnering rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, Maple and Vine was recently produced at Playwrights Horizons in New York City, and premiered at the prestigious Humana Festival for New American Plays.
The cast includes Curious Theatre Artistic Company Members C. Kelly Leo* (Ellen), Josh Robinson* (Dean) and Karen Slack (Katha), as well as Dale Li (Ryu) and Stuart Sanks (Roger).
